HAYNES AND EPINARD SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. T., Aug. 12. Epinard had his old rider, Everett Haynes, up this morning, and was given an easy gallop followed by a half mile in 51 seconds over the deep course at the Oklahoma training ground. Haynes when asked how the four-year-old felt under him said: "He was all right. Of course he wasnt going at top speed but is apparently in good shape and has benefited by his stay here". That Haynes has been riding well is evident from the French turf journals and private letters from Paris. The jockey will be seen in the saddle here some time in the near future. Yesterday he was as carefree as a schoolboy and was fraternizing with his friends. Eugene Leigh was made happy, and "sad too" as he put it by the receipt of letters from his two little daughters Helen and Doris. Though both children speak French fluently having been born in France they write In English and the letters were cpuched in terras of affection for "Daddy" ami "Epinard".
